. joe biden says he would impeach somebody that would do what he was about to do. >> i was chairman of the judiciary committee i teach this this is something i know. i got together and to write a piece pointing out the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against 70 million people unless we are attacked. and if he does, i would move to impeach him. the house obviously would have to do that. i don't say it lightly. i say it because they should understand that what they were threatening and saying and what was adding up to be what looked like the rest of the war would be the most disastrous thing that could be done that i can think of. >> could this be more clear? >> well, here is the funny ing about this. biden presides over the senate. he would preside over his own impeachment. i suggest he come to the senate floor and reiterate his own position. he would be impeaching his administration. they need to come before a joint session of congress and lay out their case and if they want to take the nation to war they need to convince the majority of congress

"early today" is back in two minutes. >>> stories making news on this friday morning -- disturb voog of a screaming match between a man and a teenager about reckless driving. it turned violent when the man brought an ax into the argument. in this cell phone video, the teen ducks matrix-style and nearly misses getting hit in the head by the blade. bystanders broke up the fight before anyone was seriously injured. >>> on thursday, vice president biden announced two new measures to reduce gun violence. the first new rule will keep them from importing military weapons back into the country. other new measures closed loopholes used by people who would normally fail a background check. >> it's simple and straightforward. it's common sense. it's going to help ensure that machine guns and other particularly dangerous weapons don't end up in the hands of those who, as a matter of law, are not entitled to own the
to chuck hagel and john kerry and joe biden is aggressive towards syria but they are stressing any strike would be surgical, that is the word they like to use, what does that mean? >> well, surgical is a relative term. mostly or most likely the first way would involve attacking missiles and submarine station would put attacking force out of harm's way and syrian defenses and allow them to an area of 50 or fewer meters to hit a precision target like a command center and radar and missile battery or military installation. >> reporter: let's get more detail on this, edward. a surgical strike against war, defenses and chemical zones, i mean supposing these are in civilian areas? >> well, that is an interesting question. obviously the first rule of entering this is what do you want to achieve and clearly the threat of military action has suddenly heightened because of the chemical weapons attack but it's not an operation which the u.s. wants to get involved in the civil war but to prevent chemical weapons attacks and you can hit radar and military sites of the government that would not stop t

another country without congressional consent. here is joe biden. >> i'd like to be clear. the president does not have the authority to launch military action in iran without first seeking congressional a authorization. >> we don't believe any authority the president has would give him the ability to go in without an act of congress. >> the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against a country of 70 million people unless we're attacked or unless there is proof that we are about to be attacked. and if he does, if he does, i would move to impeach him. >> congressman, just to clarify. joe biden from 2007 and nancy pelosi and harry reid all talking about how they felt then about president bush. what do you think is the biggest obstacle for the president? it seems as if republicans in congress, they are kind of caught between a rock and a hard place on giving the go ahead for this. but then allowing the president to almost seem as the dove turned neocon. >> the republicans for past several months have been criticizing the president for doing nothing and now th
, the first lady, michelle obama, also vice president joe biden and joe biden, they're expected to travel to key states to educate the public and encourage the folks to enroll in the new coverage options that are out there in america. in the meantime, the religious right spent the summer bearing false witness against obama care. these republicans have lied. >> let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. as people of faith, i'm a born again believer in jesus christ. and i believe that it is part of my duty as i an believer in christ and what he has done for me that we should do for the least of those who are in our midst. >> well, her words speak for themselves. don't they? they have threatened to shut down the government over this. >> the continuing resolution that funds congress expires on september 30th. i've publicly stated as has mike lie and marco rubio and a number of other senators that i will not vote for any continuing resolution that funds even a single penny of obama care. >> most of all
? >> the latest comments we have done in this coming from the white house pool from vice president joe biden, he was shouted a question and ask whether the french were on board with a syria attack, joe biden responded by saying i know everybody is on board and that is all he said, there are plenty who aren't on board. and the fringe made plenty of statements, the questions we had for the past week remain. where will it be and when will it be and we hope to get some type of guidance from the secretary at 12:30. what we expect this afternoon is the release of this intelligence report, that shows the use of chemical weapons in syria so john kerry could be commenting on that. we are not sure what they plan on laying out here. it or what timeline we're dealing with. and he is going to russia for the g 20 summit. and he would not want to launch an attack overseas. you want to be here in the united states. that is guess where, speculation, people commenting, we are not sure if that is the thought of the white house that this is the deliberative process, still wants to get congress on board, and a major
violence in america. >> vice president joe biden announced the reforms today. we have a new head of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives. biden said the president would issue two new executive orders. the first closes a loophole enabling cooperations or trusts to buy guns without background checks. the second prohibits military- grade firearms sold to allies from being reimported to united states by private groups. gun-control advocates applauded the actions. >> we think they are steps in the right directions to keep some of the most dangerous guns out of the hands of dangerous people. >> the national rifle association responded to today's announcement by saying, quote, the obama administration has once again completely missed the mark when it comes to stopping violent crime. since the shootings in newtown, connecticut, the white house has issued a total of 25 executive orders related to gun control. >>> more details now on gun- control measures here in california. the state assembly is considering a number of measures already passed by the senate. one bill wou
there. fred, we appreciate that. thank you so very much. >>> vice president, joe biden, announcing two white house executive orders on gun control. first the military surplus weapons closing a loophole. register them to a trust or corporation without a background check. the nra responding by saying if the obama administration is serious about reducing gun violence, they should spend more time prosecuting criminals for gun crimes. >> will not challenge state laws in colorado and washington allowing people to grow, buy and use marijuana. they can regulate marijuana use on their own, not a federal level. this could set the stage for more states to make pot legal. the feds will focus on distribution of marijuana to minors and preventing revenues from going to various criminal enterprises. >>> the nfl agreeing to settle a lawsuit with former players about concussion related injuries. the league setting aside $765 million. most of it for retired players suffering and those who died. >>> a new warning added to the bottle caps of tylenol. you are going to see this soon. johnson & johnson will
a forceful argument on that? >> well, i think that the joe biden and barack obama have invested a lot after the bush and cheney administration to come in and say these norms of the international order developing a stronger allergy to the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction across all chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, this is something that matters and needs to be restored. it's a defining effort by this administration. so i think the other thing is people like me have been skeptical of the president's moves in places like libya and his ability to keep that a small footprint military action and he delivered on that. i suspect that people like chuck hagel and the department of defense, denis mcdonough, his chief of staff, barack obama himself, have no enthuse wrachl about going to war again in the middle east. that makes us more compelling. iraq had an administration that wanted o run into war without evidence. this is a presidency reluctant to do this. but feeling not responding when such an international norm is collapsing, to take his back to the nightmares that us
want to roll a sound bite from joe biden saying what a great guy jon corzine is. >> i literally picked up the phone and called jon corzine and said, jon, what do you think we should do? the reason why we called jon is because we knew he knew about the economy. >> i'm sorry i'm laughing. it's not funny. eric schneiderman, attorney general to new york, has done absolutely nothing about jon corzine because he's a democrat. he only goes after the president's opponents, like donald trump. >>tucker: is there anything scarier than an attorney general or prosecutor with political ambitions willing to hurt people in order to get ahead? >> it is the abuse of the attorney general's power, just like spitzer did previously in new york state. abuse of power. >>anna: stao*urt thank -- stuart, thank you so much. watch varney and company at 9:20 a.m. >>tucker: looks like the obama administration snuck in gun control rules. stay tuned. >>anna: eric holder says having to show i.d. to vote discriminates against minorities in texas. does it? our next guest says absolutely not. he has the facts to prove it.
people. big names including vice president joe biden, his wife jill and first lady michelle obama will fan out across the country as the insurance exchanges go online in a little more than a month. even former president bill clinton is being tapped to help out. he will speak about the law to a crowd in his home state of arkansas next week. let's talk about all this with paul gigot, the editorial page editor for "the wall street journal." interesting, paul, the website, "politico" wrote about this and here was the opening line. three years after signing obamacare into law, president barack obama finally looks eager to talk about it. why now? >> well, because d-day is arriving on october 1st. the exchanges are supposed to start and january 1st, the subsidy coverage begins. so it is do-or-die. they have to do it now or this thing could fail. jon: but the president has been selling us all along on what a great program this is going to be? >> well that hasn't persuaded the country. all polls show obamacare is still more unpopular than popular but now they don't have a choice. he need t
was frequently criticized by joe biden and john kerry and barack obama, we're only missing chris dodd here, as somebody frequently criticized as being a unilateralist, while i oppose thes use of force against syria i am delight the obama administration is about to act aounilaterally without approval from the u.n. security council. we should take due note of that. >> almost like they put them aside like it's not that important when secretary kerry mentioned obstructionism. >> there are those particularly in europe who say you have to have authority to use force. there has to be some independent approval for what the obama administration is about to do. that's a very european approach to life. the american approach has always been fundamentally different. our approach is we have the right to act to defend american interests unless there's an express prohibition somewhere. there are no express prohibitions around here. as a matter of policy, i think this impending attack is a bad idea. as a matter of american authority we have all we need. i am delighted the obama administration may be on the
.s. government approval. >> host: that was vice president joe biden talking about new legislation. calls anding your asking what the president needs to know before you can make a military decision. plenty of opinion pieces out there in today's papers on the subject. we need answers on syria, and an opinion piece in today's use ofgton times," weapons by the syrian regime is inconclusive. we want to get your thoughts this morning. we go now to regina from apollo, pennsylvania on our republican line. we need to know that our congress is going to get an opportunity to declare war before mr. obama who has been chomping at the bit with lindsey and john mccain for a long time. to help theeir push muslim brotherhood over there who are killing christians, burning churches. this is not something we need to be involved in at all. we have already been there and done that. we don't have resources, the money, or any desire for anything that we can gain from this except more lives dead, more ptsd from soldiers coming home with legs blown off and more things that we don't belong and with regards to -- we reall
after he wrapped up his remarks and heard from the battltic leaders there as well as vice president joe biden in the world about this notion of taking ye ining l action. why is he moving forward without partners around the world and without the authorization of congress. to go through those two things separately, the president said he was hoping to have more international cooperation. he was hoping to have the united nations go along with hip and make a strong stand against syria. but the president hinting as we all know that he's been stymied by russia throughout all of this. they have a permanent seat on the security council at the united nations. and the president alluded to that. as for congressional authorization, he said that he continues to consult with congress and that he's been trying to do that throughout this entire process. but you do get the sense, wolf, you talked about the timetable. before he goes to the g-20 summit that's happening next week, if he were really hell bent on getting authorization from congress he would have to probably wait for several days and he would
seemed to understand this as a senator. so did joe biden as a senator as well. they both were very explicit that you have to be under imminent attack or, actually, in biden's case he said it's an impeachable offense. so he believed very strongly about this as a senator. i believe very strongly that the constitution was intended to separate the powers. you know, madison said that the executive is the power most likely to go to war so that we vested the power to declare war in congress. >> and an article you wrote for cnn.com you wrote this, i'll put it up on the screen. you said america's wars must be debated by congress, declared constitutionally and fought only for the interests and security of the united states. they should never be fought to save face. so what do you mean by that when you say save face? because the implication is what as far as the president is concerned? >> i think some may feel, and the president may be one who feels that he's losing his international power or acclaim if he doesn't follow -- he said there was a red line with chemical weapons and he feels incum
